This is one of the most popular rides in the valley and right outside our front door! Leaving the Adventure East shop in Sunderland we will ride over the Connecticut River and turn onto River Road in Deerfield. Here we start a gentle 10-mile uphill through scenic farmland. Crossing back over the river, we enter Turners Falls and head towards Montague and the now famous Book Mill on the banks of the Saw Mill river. After some refreshments we will turn south towards Sunderland with glimpses of the Connecticut River, rolling farm hills and wooded forests this is the perfect end to our scenic ride.


Total Distance: 21 miles with gradual ascent over 10 miles before descending back into Sunderland.
